Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I have several acquaintances that are emits, and on several occasions they have spoken to me about responding to accidents in which during the deployment of the drivers and passengers airbag systems passengers and drivers have been severely injured. For example, the cover on the steering wheel, when activated, and depending on the positions of the drivers hands on the wheel, digits have been severed. While passengers are riding, they often place their feet on the dash, then when the airbag is deployed if they do not react and move their feet, their knees are driven into their face or chest causing severe injury. I would like to know why these incidents have not been addressed in any report that I have read nor has the general public been notified as to the hazards of leg or hand position while riding or driving. Is this not information that the public should be made aware of" yes, airbags save lives, but lives were saved by only seat belts prior to airbags. Living is always better than dying, however loosing digits or suffering facial or rib cage damage, when unnecessary is uncalled for--don't you agree. These incidents have occurred over the last several years in various makes and models of vehicles, so please do not pay any attention to the incident date, year of vehicle, type of vehicle, etc., required by this form. Please let me know if there is a report or information available to the general public on this matter that I am not aware of, and its location. If not, could action be taken to notify the general public"
